Is accommodation included in my ticket price?

Yes. Rockaway Beach is held in a holiday resort so your ticket includes a pass to the music festival and 3 nights accommodation. Because of the venue licence you cannot purchase tickets without accommodation or buy day tickets, so all tickets will include a festival pass + accommodation for 3 nights. Each ticket also includes access to all the onsite entertainment facilities such as the water park, arcades, etc, as well as extra festival fun such as late night DJs, a silent disco and much more!

What about under 18s?

The event is strictly over 18s only.

Can I buy day tickets for the festival?

We're sorry but there are no day tickets available for Rockaway Beach.

Can I buy a ticket without accommodation?

As we have to hire the entire Butlin's site including all chalets for the festival weekend, room cost is included in your ticket price and we're unable to sell tickets without accommodation.

What about disabled access / carers?

All resort facilities are fully accessible.

Can you bring your own alcohol onto the site?

Butlin's requests that all festival attendees do not bring excessive quantities of alcohol onto the resort. The quantity that is deemed excessive will be at the discretion of Butlin's. If any attendees ignores this, their alcohol will be removed and returned at the end of the weekend. If any attendees repeatedly ignore this, they may be asked to leave Butlin's. 

If Butlin's feel that this request is being ignored then further action might be taken, which could include the searching of vehicles entering the resort. Therefore, they, and we, request that you try not to openly flaunt the policy on excessive amounts.
